    Either one will work fine. If you can fit and afford the 5, go for that. If not, the 3 will work just fine. Not a lot of info coming through those speakers, so I would probably just go with the 3 if it were me...

    I own a set OWM3's and they get plenty loud and clear. Very impressive little speakers.

    For your size room, those OWM3's should be fine and also a PERFECT match to your rear elevated set. Go for it! :)

    Ok, I'll assume you're looking for compatible Atmos hight speakers to add to your system?

    Yes friend

    I see. I'll have to defer to more experienced members here, but at least we got to the crux of the situation.

    What country do you hail from? Knowing that may help with the selection and apparent language barrier as well.

    If your happy with the owm3's as rears, I would get the own 5's. Run the 5's as rears and use the 3's as front height.

    Room size plays a pretty important part in height speakers. Too small and they won't work. If you can mount speakers in your ceiling, I would go that route.

    A forum member asked you " How big is your room?"

    You haven't answered.

    You didn't come out and say IN THE BEGINING you bought 4 of those OWM3"s. You want answers but you leave out IMPORTANT parts that would be of GREAT help to us who want to help you. Do we have to pry info out of you after every post?

    If you have the 3's use them.

    Your front 3 are the most important, followed by the side surrounds. These 5 speakers, as well as a good sub, are the basis of any surround system. Getting the 5.1 part of your system right is the most important part of a good surround set-up.

    If your going for ATMOS, which it seems that you are, most people feel a 5.1.2 system is the next step. If you placed your owm3's on the ceiling, you have the 5.1.2 set-up.

    The owm 3's will work fine for front heights, but if you plan on mounting these on the ceiling, and fairly close to the display, i would think your speakers are closer to a 5.1.4 set-up than it would be a 9.1 set-up.

    For that matter, I would probably configure the speakers in the AVR settings as a 5.1.4 even if you mounted the owm 3's high on the front wall.

    Little long and drawn out answer, but with ATMOS, you have a lot more options in speaker configuration and assaignment.

    Big thanks Tony❤
    Tomorrow I'll hang them
  • Viking64Viking64 Posts: 3,605
    If you hang speakers anywhere near your projection screen, make sure they are shielded so your projected image doesn't distort.
  • tomtriptomtrip Posts: 13
    Yes, of course.
    And they'll be up front at the edge
    Thanks for the valuable group help
